NEW JERSEY -

And then there was one.

New Jersey is now the only state left in the entire United States of America where all residents are prohibited from pumping their own gasoline at gas stations.

Up until Monday, January 1st, Oregon was the only other state that didn't allow its residents to pump their own gas.

As of Monday, however, a new law grants gas stations in rural Oregon counties to allow self-service for its customers.

The new regulations were signed into law in June and allows counties with 40,000 residents or less to allow residents to pump their own gas.

In New Jersey, gas station attendants must pump gas for customers at fueling stations.
